Often Daniel and I like to go for a walk around the lake near my house.

It's a lake most of the year, and then the summer comes and it becomes a very large pond attached to swampy muddy wetlands. It's the natural rhythm of the place, and it's always interesting to see the change in bird visitors as the year goes on.

Daniel and I were sitting in the shade of a picnic table, scanning the lake for birds of interest. He was looking through a pair of binoculars. I wrapped my arm around him and thought about what we were doing.

People, of our age, both wrapped up in nature, with birds. And I thought about all the middle-aged and old-aged couples I'd seen doing the same thing as us. Often I'd hope we'd be those people one day.

Then my mind drifted to how remarkable it was that we both liked looking at birds and animals. Most people our age have no interest in that sort of thing. What are the chances we'd find each other?

I aired these thoughts to him. "Just think. Not only do we both love animals and birds and nature walks, which among our age group isn't all that common. We're also madly attracted to each other. We have amazing sex, we're happy together. We're very lucky."

"Yes we are," he replied.

I really do thank God every day for him. He is a blessing. And it's nice to have someone to enthuse about local bird species to. I don't know anyone else that would have gotten as excited about Freckled Ducks as he did.
